Many people were monitoring the Kwara project, to see if there was the possibility of doing similar projects elsewhere in Nigeria. The problems have put many people off the idea, a friend of mine, a Nigerian businessman in London was trying to recruit people, preferrably Zimbabwean farmers to start a project in Edo, as well as him starting a dairy farm of his own with qualified help, but we were unable to recruit anyone, despite the full backing of the Edo governor.
It is unfortunate that the combination of security concerns, and the difficulty in accessing the promised loans, have prevented what should have been a major agricultural revolution in Nigeria.

If you can indicate which state you intend to start the beef herd, I can make some enquiries on your behalf.
